Junel Fe just switched, breakthrough bleeding normal?

I just switched from Ortho Tri-cyclen Lo to Junel last week just because of pricing and my doctor recommended it. I've also been on yaz and gianvi in the past. I've never had any breakthrough bleeding on the 3 pills I was on before but I'm now on the 3rd day of my 2nd week of Junel and I started having breakthrough bleeding yesterday. It was there a little yesterday, then went away over night, and now it's back. It's not too much but it's very dark and I'm having slight cramps from it. Is this normal at the start of Junel? Has nayone experienced this and how long did it go on for? I'd really like it go away this week as it's uncomfortable and annoying.

Re: Junel Fe just switched, breakthrough bleeding normal?

I was on Beyaz for about a year and switched to Junel Fe this past sunday. So it has only been 3 days. I was told by my gyno that breakthrough bleeding the first pack is expected. Not happy about it either. Hoping it decides to have a mind of its own and maybe quit it a few weeks early.
